How to?

Post by Taffy » Mon Apr 30, 2018 5:11 pm

I am not very good with all things computer! I want to put a couple of photos on and I get the message, error too large when I click on attachments! How do I get my photos to the right size to be accepted in a post? :roll:

I usually simply resize them using MS Paint, save, then add the new smaller Attachment files.

Get yourself an imgur.com account taffy and upload your photos there...
Then simply copy the link to your photo (or share it I think it actually says on the imgur website) in between a pair of [img] boxes that you get by clicking on the little image box above the smilies and that should sort you right out... :wink:

Here you go taffy...
Once you’ve uploaded to imgur ‘share’ or ‘copy link’ over into BBMW by clicking on the box highlighted in blue and pasting your link between the boxes and hey presto...! :D

Good luck :wink:
